HRSA RFI: Access to Rural Health Care

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Rural Health Task Force are seeking information about access to health care in rural communities.

Responses are to be emailed to hrsacomments@hrsa.gov by October 9, 2019.

Evidence indicates that generally, rural populations experience greater disease burden and continue to experience health care access challenges with closing hospitals and fewer primary and specialty physicians. The Rural Health Task Force is seeking input from stakeholders in determining what health care services are needed in these rural communities, how such services can be delivered, and what factors, unique to rural populations, must be considered when addressing health care access issues.

The Request for Information (RFI) notice can be found here.
